Since then, nothing. Not a peep. Were they pitched headlong into a maelstrom of intertwined nightmares and mephitic visions of the damned? Are they suffering from an existential funkor brought on by visions of a world gone insane? Do they tremble before an awful vision of destiny that they can neither control nor understand?

I wonder.

For the self-destructively curious, I once wrote up a little essay on my experiences with the film. It is quite verbose, so do not read while driving or operating heavy machinery.

And perhaps even now, in some shadowy corner of a forgotten carnival, there yet lies a long, coffin-like box. A sinister old professor is ready to open it for you, to show you the spectacle of Cesare. On and on he sleeps, the young man in black, but when his eyes finally open, they look at you, and see....

We actually ended up watching something else.

It was my fault. Jeff was set to watch it, but I've been having migraines, and I knew that I'd never be able to pay enough attention to it and read the lines.

I think we watched the first half hour of King Corn instead.

Never in the long history of disappointing things has anyone been more disappointed than I am right now.

Sorry to let you down. I just wanted to post now to say that we just finished up King Corn. Tonight is the last night it will be available on Netflix instant, after all.

That's some pretty nice, even handwriting for the diary of someone who's insane.

The individual who chose the font (for the version that Netflix has available for streaming) needs to be hit repeatedly in the junk with a stuffed fish.
